About this book

Tells the story of the wild creatures and plants that live within the urban environment of Northern Ireland's capital. The book also takes a fresh look at the common plants that colonise derelict urban spaces and the invertebrates that crawl around the garden. A unique feature of the book is a guide to some of the best sites in the area for observing wildlife: how to get there, the best time to visit, and a flavour of what might be seen.
